Men’s and Women’s Sheds in Donegal are being invited to make applications for funding to the Community Enhancement Scheme.
Additional funding of €0.5m has been allocated nationally to the Communities Enhancement Scheme for small capital grants.
The Scheme provides small-scale grants for Men’s Sheds who are affiliated with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association.
Women’s Sheds can also apply for this funding.
The Donegal Local Community Development Committee will administer the scheme on behalf of the Department. Donegal LCDC has been granted a fund of almost €29,000.
Men’s & Women’s Sheds Community Enhancement Scheme funding is only for capital projects, or capital parts of projects.
